I've done a little research:

269, 319, 395
This is a limitation due to design -- it's always been there and it is
there for security reasons.  This has been considered by myself and Randy
as a documentation issue.  People who want to burn their house down can
write their own.

367, 368, 354
A fix has been proposed, and is now up for votes...  I think the patch for
mod_cgi/453 fixes these three PRs for suexec.  Can anyone confirm/deny
this?  I'm too busy to test at the moment.

Yes, a documentation clarity error.  Fixed with a rewrite of docs.  I'm
planning on doing some suexec docs work soon...after I finish term papers.

I cannot replicate this problem.  On top of that, he's fixed his own
problem and hasn't told us how.  On top of that, I've not had a problem
with QUERY_STRINGS for ages...since early betas.  I don't think this is
still an issue, but I'll look into it later...

If we fix the docs on the #1 and #3, I think #2 is taken care of and #4
doesn't exist (I don't think).  I think we're pretty stable once we solve
this groupname/gid problem.
